Our domestic market is saturated. It is harder and harder to get sales and competition within our country is getting tougher.
As for certain subway station being under utilised, well, you cannot wait until there's sufficient demand then you start to build the station. People will condemn it! You anticipate the growth and build it. But then again, there will still be people complaining. That's what Singaporean do the best. Under utilised station> complain. Cannot build in time> Complain.
As for hike in transportation, inflation, that's a global threats. We are not alone. The forces behind it is beyond our control. And if the authority is to subsidise heavily, then that is even more grave considering that we will be heading towards a nanny state, and what's next? Welfare state?
As for not enough good schools and staffs having low salary... that's the point I'm trying to make you understand.
Building more schools is easy. Staffing the school with good teachers is the problem because most of our qualified people are venturing out for business as our market is too small and saturated. Therefore we need to attract the so call foreign teachers but our peasants are complaining. So help me out.
and if staff wants more pay, well, the company must first of all make sufficient money. But our market is simply too small and saturated. If you don't want more people to pour into Singapore, then tell me what should be done to increase our market size?
Move overseas? Then jobs will move overseas.
